I left the kids alone for a few minutes. They’re playing together in the pool, throwing a wristband and racing underwater to see who can retrieve it first.
The humidity is stifling, and the lukewarm pool supplies zero relief. I failed to pack a book, notebook, or anything to pass the time. I tell the kids I’ll be right back and amble across the parking lot to our apartment.
I’m gone no more than two minutes. I return to my son, yelling my name.
“Dad! Dad! We’re playing a game of hiding the bracelet, and she keeps hiding it near her who-ha! Can you tell her to stop!”
She looks me in the eyes.
“Stop sticking the bracelet near your who-ha.”
I’ll take “Things Only Parents Say” for $200, Alex.
